The Death of Butterflies


   
my scars    
were like knives  
dreaded to the touch  
such was a tale of love  
given..unreservedly  
taken..undeservedly  
manipulated through lust  
a toxic mixture  
bound to combust  
turning    
promises into dust  
   
   
sans the stars  
   
   
now    
you are lost to me  
 the fates accost me  
through dreams    
turned nightmares  
rendering me exhausted    
drained  
   
   
as    
thoughts of    
you remain ingrained  
too many    
memories roam  
so many sighs    
and moans echo    
within the hollow of    
my inner chambers  
i find myself asphyxiated  
in a void where  
only your air  
resided  
   
   
now    
we are divided    
into spaces  
where apologies  
won't suffice  
still i wear you    
like a vice    
around my soul  
   
   
constricted  
conflicted  
still addicted to  
your sugar in the raw  
ohh.. how you let me    
indulge every    
bitter sweet flaw  
   
   
chaotic..incognito  
intelligent..naive    
divine...devilish  
feminine..fierce  
compassionate here  
selfish there  
sexually extravagant  
creatively magnificent  
my multifaceted  
ms.marvel girl  
   
   
no more  
   
   
never again    
will i feel heat emanate  
from your core  
i tore a hole    
deep within  
bore through your soul  
with drippings of  
my acidic love  
   
   
alien to your Terra  
   
   
that    
one error of a man  
deeply regretted  
as the era of you and I  
comes to an  
unceremonious close  
'tis indeed  
a form of poetic justice  
i suppose
